Foam control & surface agents for crop care applications
How silicone products improve Crop Care Sciences?
Crop science specialists and manufacturers are constantly innovating to produce better and safer agrochemicals to meet the agricultural challenge to feed the world's growing population. Agricultural silicone ingredients are essential in this quest to protect and enhance crops. Elkem Silicones products enhance crop science manufacturers' productivity, facilitate spreading and wetting performances on the plant. Our experts are available worldwide to advise you and work collaboratively with you to find the solutions you need.
Foam control & surface agents for chemical applications
How silicone products are key for the performances of your chemical processes?
Manufacturers of chemicals often use reactive silicone ingredients directly as intermediates in the synthesis of their products. Silicones are widely used as processing aids to improve the efficiency of chemical processes. As lubricants and as SILCOLAPSE™ foam control agents they minimize the reduction of effective reactor volumes, of pumping efficiencies, and of the shear in mixing operations. Foam control agents are also used in the treatment of aqueous effluent streams generated by chemical processing.
